Welcome to 

Hamilton East School


Enrolment Zone Map

This is the enrolment zone for Hamilton East School. When enrolling your child it is essential that you provide proof of address with a utility account, tenancy agreement, etc. New students cannot start school until this has been provided and sited by office staff. 

Currently, we are not conducting enrolment ballots as our school numbers are greater than our capacity.

How do I enrol my child? 

The school admits children on their 5th birthday. Parents/guardians are asked to fill in an enrolment form. If possible please complete this enrolment form a few months before your child turns 5 so we can plan our staffing and classroom allocations. You will be given information about the school and the student will be given a class and teacher. Enrolment forms are available from the school office.

How do I help settle my child?

We encourage parents to bring their child along to an Open Morning before their birthday, so they can spend time in the classroom and become familiar and confident about the school. Once children are enrolled children can visit their class for a morning in the week prior to starting school. Please contact the office to make the necessary arrangements. We have booklets and other material available that give additional advice. You can bring your child along to Positive Assembly at 9am on Friday mornings. Our New Entrant teachers are experienced and skilled at settling new students into school.

What is the school donation?

This money is used to help pay for classroom materials, such as paper, paint, glue and for other equipment used in classroom activities.

$80 - for one child, $100 - for a family per year.

You can pay once a year or term by term. A reminder is sent out in the second term to those who have not paid. If there are difficulties in paying this, please contact the school office.
